  1. Vishwajeet Kumar

    Hello Janice,

    Awesome Post. I have been using Pinterest from the past 2 months and it gives me decent traffic. I am now giving more time to it. This post is so helpful to me to understand more about Pinterest. It is definitely a good alternative after Google+

      Hi Vishwajeet,
      I see from your headline you reviewed SiteGround. I just switched and am pretty happy so far.

    Hi Janice,

    This is well educative and informative.

    Making money on social media has been a lot easier than in the past. With lots of marketing features on these social media sites for marketers to use for content promotions, it becomes easier to reach our followers than before.

    I use Facebook a lot. For personal branding, traffic, engagements, paid ads, etc. Facebook is my default social media marketing platform.

    Thanks for sharing, Janice.

      Hi Shamsudeen,
      1. Great to see you. It’s been years. I don’t think I’ve seen you since Kingged revamped itself. I use to see you at Kingged regularly.
      2. After reading your comments, I sent you a Facebook friend request. That way we can stay in touch and I can see first-hand you in action at Facebook and get some Facebook marketing examples from you. Personally, I find Instagram easier to monetize than Facebook at least so far.
      3. Thanks for writing and adding to the discussion with these Facebook marketing ideas.

    Janice thanks for the shout 🙂 Goodness I love live videos. Easy way to bond with your audience. Plus it is super simple to sell on social media with live broadcasts because folks link a book or eBook with a human being, buy in, and… in. Boost sales guys. Share value through live broadcasts. Connect on a deeper level. Promote yourself. Excellent post!

    That is a great tip about changing the target url once you share something to Pinterest. Most people will lose interest before going through all of the steps to pin down a link.

    • Janice Wald

      Hi Elise,
      I’m glad you found my time-saving tip helpful. I agree with you. People are so busy that even saving one step could make a difference in marketing success. Thanks for commenting.

    Hi Janice,

    You got it all correct. I learned a few tricks, actually. I have never thought of adding affiliate links to a Pinterest image. And when you look at it, it is an effective tactic, as well as all the other tips. I should be paying more attention to Pinterest

    What a helpful post. Adding the 50 Best Social Media Aps was great too. I did not know about adding affiliate links to Pinterest images. Must try that out.

    • Janice Wald

      Hi Kathryn,
      Thanks for coming by. Regarding the 50 Best Social Media App post– did you find it under the post? I love the Bibblio app. It shows people related posts.
      I’m glad you found the tip about adding an affiliate link to a Pinterest image helpful. That’s been the most common comment on this post! Are you an affiliate? Of which company?

    What a helpful post, I did not know about adding a link to Pinterest images. This means I ones tried it a long time ago and it rejected. Maybe in between, it changed and I will try again. Also, I learned other useful things here
    .Thank you for this awesome post
